Participants

Our core home renovation workshop is designed by women, for women, and open to all. Attendees are ethnically diverse and span the ages of 28-70, most of whom are working professionals. The majority of participants are women, and two-thirds are already homeowners who are hungry for practical resources and information on how to successfully take on major home improvement projects. Ninety-eight percent of our participants say they feel both more informed and more prepared for their home renovation.

“I feel more confident expressing expectations and feel like I will save a ton of money.

Workshop was extremely informative and well organized.

I now know I can do this. Thanks for helping build my self-confidence.

I attended the inaugural session of this FANTASTIC workshop and I highly recommend it for womxn who are dipping their toes into the renovation waters. Even if you have a general contractor who will be overseeing the work, this is the best $ you can spend on your home.

This workshop was everything I expected and more. I learned so much about the tiny house process. I am now even more certain of my dreams to live tiny and can’t wait to get started.”
